I'll tell my kids one day that, on the very same night Gabuza walked off the during the game. Sundowns was practically knocked out by a team that takes a team photo like this?? pic.twitter.com/bNttK2n2UC

With Mamelodi Sundowns’ #CAFCL exit, we may see some more transfer activity at Chloorkop before Friday…
There are players who were registered for CAF but aren’t necessarily needed now. Could be a loan/transfer or two on the cards.

Mamelodi Sundowns have nothing to worry about, transitions are always a rude awakening. TP Mazembe and Al Ahly just came back from slump after loosing the entire squads that help them dominate Africa. Rebuilding and integrating young players is a process that need sober minds.

Mamelodi Sundowns fans must come to terms with this fact: Sundowns will never be the same without the services of Tau and Billiat. Mahlambi is nowhere near these two in terms of influence in the game. Khama & Tau would never warm the bench in Egypt. Never!

Disappointed Sundowns are out of the Caf Champions League in the groups. It's a reality top PSL players move to Europe, but it's unforgivable for Masandawana to lose these players to rivals, fail to replace them with similar quality & then think they can easily progress in Africa
